Asus Spotlights Handheld Devices at Computex
Adding to their already immense technology cache, Asus has been concentrating on a number of personal handheld devices that feature innovative software, touchscreen tech, high speed downloads and user-friendly interfaces. Among the items on display at Computex 2008 is the Asus Glide - a handheld device capable of multitasking, featuring Asus Today, and operating environment that simplifies tasks and incorporates a full desktop experience - including e-mail, calendar, and a music player - in the tiny device. Also of note are the EziPhoto and EziMusic applets on the Glide, which allow users to experience their favorite pictures and music in a totally new way, even allowing a user to record a clip from their favorite song and turn it into a ringtone! Also on display is the Asus Lamborghini ZX1 - a beast of a PDA sporting a carbon fiber and stainless steel casing, touchscreen, and a customizable GUI. Next up is the Asus P320, the world's smallest Windows Mobile PDA phone. Last, but not least, Asus is offering Personal Navigation Devices (PND's) which offer a 3D map function to help simplify complex directions, and one PND that projects navigation instructions onto the windshield so that the driver never has to take their eyes off of the road.
2007 was a great year for Asus, bringing home 2568 awards from all over the globe. For the 10th year in a row, Asus was ranked as one of Business Week's "Top 100 InfoTech" companies, and also won the "Number One in Quality and Service" award from the Asian edition of the Wall Street Journal.
